Transition Cambridge Summer Birthday Celebration

The annual downpours signal the beginning of another great Cambridge summer!

Obviously all this rain is coming now so that, come 31st July, we'll be able to have a bring and share picnic on a glorious sunny day on the Empty Common Community Garden from 2pm. If it rains we'll find somewhere covered nearby...

More details to come so save the date and watch this space.

Join the Energy Group!

One of the largest sources of greenhouse emissions is the way we get out energy. Through actions like reducing energy consumption, purchasing more efficient equipment and installing renewable energy infrastructure, we can move towards a low carbon future.

The energy group is your place to find tips to save energy, get involved in awareness-raising across the area or help set-up renewable energy co-ops. Look out for upcoming events in the newsletter for your chance to get involved.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all.

However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations.

We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!

Friday 24th June: Uptown Friday lunchtime social

Daily Bread 12:30-13:30 add to google calendar
A roughly monthly social in the charming Daily Bread cafe. They don't really sell lunch, especially if you're vegan, so you might want to bring a packed lunch! The cake and biscuits are good though.
